Woonchang Cho, a master in the Korean traditional art of 'Nakjuk'. Woonchang Cho is standing in front of the bamboos, which are boiled and dried in preparation of the 'nakjuk'. The floral and leaf pattern is seared with an iron on a 'nakjuk' quiver. There is nothing else he needs, as he draws with fire.
Nakjuk is considered one of the most complicated technique amongst the applied fine art of 'juk'.Woonchang Cho(65) has drawn with fire using one curved iron for 30 years.

'Nakjuk' is a traditional technique which uses an iron, heated on pine charcoal fire, to inscribe a pattern, a drawing, or a writing on the surface of a bamboo that has been boiled and dried. In Korea, the 'Nakjuk' technique was transmited by Chang-gyu Park from the time of Soonjo in Chosun Dynasty until the Japanese occupation.
In 1969, it was registered as the 31st issue of important cultural properties.

The voice hearing through telephone and sweet music hearing through stereo has so many things in common. For the best, both the voice and the music change emotion of listener by slight change of tones. There fore, I metaphored music player to voice player (telephone).

Image of telephone icon
This is not a telephone. This is metaphored CD player.
To tell CD player is meant to metaphor with telephone, I used icon image of telephone instead of telephone itself.

Silhouette of CD
This item, telephone, uses only sense of hearing so that visual image could be imagined through voice but it’s not clear. As music also uses sense of hearing only, this CD player shows unclear image (silhouette) of CD to tell its playing.
